How It Works

For students aged 13+ signing onto our 12-week DofE course, you’ll work independently from home or school and as your Tutor, we’ll be supervising and aiding your learning. 

​You’ll need to spend a minimum of 1 hour per week (preferably more) over 12 weeks for a Bronze or Silver Skill, and 1hr a week up to 6 months for Gold. 

Whilst you’ll be working remotely using our Virtual Network online at an agreed time, we’ll be online with you, monitoring your progress with advice and feedback. 

Each week we’ll set an individual Lesson Plan, and also provide a monthly tutor report with lots of feedback to turn you into a Touch Typist along with gaining your DofE Skill.

After your final lesson, we’ll complete your online Assessor Report.

So don’t delay – book your DofE Touch Typing Course and we look forward to helping you succeed.
